Iowa: "Not All Cornfields and All That"

Caught up with Wootton wide receiver Stephane N'goumou upon his return from Iowa to discuss his commitment to play for the Hawkeyes.

"The trip was nice," N'goumou said. "I liked a lot of things about Iowa. The town. The city is nice, the culture is great. The people are nice. It's like a big family. That's what made me want to go there and be a part of the family."

N'goumou had never been to Iowa before. He had read a bit about the Hawkeye State but was eager to see it for himself.

"I knew about the cornfields and all that, but that's about it. And the football team, of course," he said. "The airport I went to was in Cedar Rapids. I was on the plane looking down and it was flat. Then we drove to Iowa City. It's nice. It's not all cornfields and all that."

In other recruiting news, colleague Alan Goldenbach reports that Ballou lineman James Lewter is bound for Tennessee State, where he will enroll for the spring semester.

The 6-foot-2, 300-pound Lewter was a three-year starter for the Knights. He also has offers from Howard and Grambling.
